"By 2011, shipments of dual-mode wireless handsets will be well in excess of 300 million worldwide," said Philip Solis, principal analyst at ABI Research. "Handset manufacturers are bringing new handsets to the market quickly, and service providers are beginning to offer UMA services commercially."


Kineto & NXP - UMA software

"With fixed-mobile converged services gaining traction in Europe and Asia, consumers are not only seeking low-cost calling but also uninterrupted voice clarity even if they are indoors," said GertJan Kaat, senior vice president and general manager of NXP's mobile and personal business unit. "NXP's Nexperia cellular system solution 5210 builds on Kineto's UMA software to enable consumers to truly enjoy the economic benefits of dual-mode phones without compromising on call quality as consumers switch unnoticed between mobile and WiFi networks."

The Nexperia cellular system solution 5210 improves performance while lowering cost in mid-range (2.75G) GSM/GPRS/EDGE mobile phones. It combines very high integration with an exceptionally efficient architecture and eliminates the need for a separate coprocessor or audio chip. The Nexperia cellular system solution 5210 integrates a high performing Bluetooth/ WLAN co-existence solution, allowing consumers to make high quality voice calls with dual-mode handset in combination with a Bluetooth enabled headset.
